Relaxing Getaway

We choose this cruise because we had not been to most of the stops nor traveled with Norwegian and wanted to give it a try. Aside from the embarkation which was a NIGHTMARE because we waited in lines for over 3 ...

Great cruise! Good decision!

We chose this cruise as it fit our time line, and it with NCL; a cruise line we sailed with some time ago (and a few others with other lines in between), and had an equally good time. On a side note, had we based ...

Left something to be Desired

We originally chose this specific ship because of the affordability of the balcony rooms. Ignoring the negative reviews we went ahead and hit the button as a balcony room was a must for us. Pros: The cabin was as ...

Worst Cruise Ever

The boat itself was beautiful and well kept. However, the service is one of the worst. The staff all seemed new and unfamiliar with the boat. They were not very attentive. The bartenders took forever to get drinks ...
